The landscape of Australia’s electricity network is undergoing significant transformation, largely driven by the importance to decarbonise and the closure of aging coal-fired power plants. This shift entails a greater reliance on variable electricity generation sources – solar energy output varies with the intensity of sunlight, while wind turbines only produce electricity when the wind blows.

Pumped Hydro Energy Storage enables the ability to store renewable electricity generated from these sources and utilised during periods when the Australian population would have typically depended on coal fired generation – facilitating a smoother transition towards renewable energy utilisation.
